Make The RIGHT Choice

Jan 1st, 2015 by admin

Every day we put on things. We put on clothes and shoes. Some will put on jewelry and others will put on protective gear for work. But what does it mean to “put on the Lord Jesus Christ?” Romans 13:14 says, “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ….” This statement is given as in opposition to putting on the sins stated in verse 13 (rioting, drunkenness, strife, and envying); therefore, it leads us to putting on righteousness. We are to clothe ourselves with Jesus Christ and all He is: truth (not lies), purity (not immorality), love (not self-centeredness), and joy (not bitterness, anger, envy, or resentment). This “putting on of the Lord Jesus Christ” is crucial to victorious Christian living. If we choose to put on the opposite of who Jesus Christ is, we will be preparing for discouragement, frustration, and defeat! Excellence in our everyday choices will yield victory.  Start with a step of victory and come to church this Sunday…I’ll be looking for you!

Living one step at a time,

What is your relationship with God like?

taken from the "Daily in the Word" devotional...
On a wall in his bedroom Charles Spurgeon had a plaque with the words of Isaiah 48:10 on it: “I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Spurgeon wrote: “It is no mean thing to be chosen of God. God’s choice makes chosen men choice men...We are chosen, not in the palace, but in the furnace. In the furnace, beauty is marred, fashion is destroyed, strength is melted, glory is consumed; yet here eternal love reveals its secrets, and declares its choice.”

A life of service and usefulness to God is worth the cost, but we should not forget that there is a cost to be paid. We may be misunderstood, attacked, and criticized. We may not have the health and wealth that we desire. We may have to make significant sacrifices. But for those who are willing to submit to God’s refining process, there is great opportunity for service and blessing.

Plan On This…
